The Walmart PS5 and Xbox restock is today, with the largest US retailer confirming the start time of when you can finally get those hard-to-buy video game consoles. We can already see the product pages for PS5 Digital and Disc versions, as well as the Xbox Series X and Series S versions.
Here are the official Walmart PS5 and Xbox restock times:
$499 Xbox Series X at Walmart – in stock today at 2:30pm EST / 11:30am PST

1. PS5, Xbox restock tips: the Walmart time
Time restock time
The Xbox restock will go on sale at 2:30pm EST to purchase via Microsoft’s All Access Xbox Game Pass financing plan – we’ve asked Walmart if you’ll be able to buy it outright, too, and we’ll update this story as soon as we can report on that.
The PS5 stock will go on sale at 2:30pm EST, 30 minutes after the Xbox restock, according to Walmart, and it’ll cost $399 and $499 for the PS5 Digital and Disc versions respectively. Unlike other retailers, Walmart won’t stick you with bundles.
How to get our Twitter tracker alert
This is the sort of Twitter notification to look out for when the console drops happen:

3. How Walmart restocks work: don’t give up
Keep refreshing and keep trying to hammer that Add to cart button. You will see it go out of stock three or four times once every 10 minutes. It’ll suddenly say the PS5 will be back in stock at 3:10pm. Don’t take that first delay as an answer.
Try multiple devices: phone, tablet, several browsers – both the mobile app and the web have had different results for people. Persistence and variety will help.
We sent out an instant alert about the Amazon PS5 restock via our Twitter tracker, and we plan to do the same for Walmart today. Amazon on Wednesday had the console in stock – it had been 15 days since the retailer had new PS5 stock and it’s the easiest retailer to check out from, so it went out of stock in about two minutes.
Remember, the time and date for restock is never truly known. These big box stores in America do gravitate toward launching new stock during the same time window, though, according to our PS5 restock Twitter tracker.
Happy ending to this PS5 story. Happy to play a part.❤️ https://t.co/WhtMOS2putFebruary 25, 2021
Through Twitter, we’re tracking the next PS5 stock from more than 12 sources, and we’ve seen a few PS5 consoles pop up over the last week and, even better news, high success rates for people who have been looking for restock for months.
Even if you don’t get to buy the console today, there may be a PS5 drop any one of the days in the upcoming week.
